Fatigued? Worked up? Stressed out?
The 21st century is the era when women's stress levels have reached exceptional heights. Caught up between marriage and work, its responsibilities, women burn more energy than they gain even after suffice sleep and a healthy diet.
The result? Hormonal havoc.
In clear, accessible language, internationally renowned doctor Claudia Welch explains Hormones from A to Z - specifically how they relate to each other, how and why they become imbalanced, and how women can restore that balance. Welch also includes simple diet tips, stress-management techniques, and natural sleep secrets.
Claudia Welch delivers lectures as well as teaches internationally on both Asian and Ayurvedic Medicine, which she has studied for more than twenty-five years.
She regularly lectures on Women's Health, and Oriental and Ayurvedic medicines internationally and brings a depth of knowledge and a sense of joy to her presentations.

Balance Your Hormones, Balance Your Life, Dr. Welch's first book, combines Eastern medical theory with Western science to provide uncommon insights into hormones, women's health concerns, lifestyle and diet. It is designed to be accessible for all women, and anyone who wants to understand women's health, whether they are students or practitioners of Western medicine, Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, or simply of life. It is not important to have any background in any medical system to appreciate and grok this book, but it also offers new perspectives to seasoned medical practitioners.
The Four Qualities of Effective Physicians: Practical Ayurvedic Wisdom for Modern Physicians, Dr. Welch's second book, explores the four qualities said in ancient and modern Ayurveda, to be vital for a physician to cultivate if they wish to be effective. She explores these attributes as they apply to the modern world and practice of medicine. While written with the physician in mind, it covers ground that applies to everyone. For example, the mechanics of emotional contagion--who affects whom, how we know what we know, how we develop confidence over cockiness, avoid insecurity while having a realistic grasp on our lack of knowledge and other curious discussions.
